Filled with paintings, sculptures and quirky light fittings, a three-bedroom property is available to rent in Crosby Row, Borough.
The street is named after Major Brass Crosby who clashed with the Commons as lord mayor of London in 1771, when he defended the right of the press to publish Parliamentary debate. He was subsequently confined in the Tower of London for his pains — hence the phrase “bold as brass”.
Paying tribute to its heritage, a portrait of Crosby hangs in the stairwell of the four-storey house, which is available for £895 a week.
